Gandhi and Charlie Andrews...

Have been reading c.f.andrews on gandhi written in 1930.

He ends his book with this highly insightful para that i think makes sense today in the Indian context too 

"throughout the western world there are many voluntary organizations appealing to different sides of the population - some to the women, some to the youth, some to the men. these have often displayed great enthusiasm in the cause of world peace. europe is not lacking in the power to create and sustain such voluntary, organized effort. but what has not yet been found in the west is a moral genius of such commanding spiritual personality as to be able to unite and combine these various organized efforts into one overwhelming movement of Non-Violence which should be strong enough to sweep away on a tide of world approval the opposing forces".
